Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy

At Quality Care Rehabilitation Professionals, we specialize in rehabilitation for patients suffering from physical and neurological diseases that hinder them from being self-sufficient or able to perform in a work environment. We work with patients one-on-one to bring back muscle memory, cognitive skills and articulatory skills to help them communicate and complete daily tasks in order to live healthy, happier lives.

Quality Care Rehabilitation Professionals serve in the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.

Physical Therapy - Physical therapists provide services that help restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Patients participating in physical rehabilitation include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as low-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and cerebral palsy.

The physical therapist will help you regain lost mobility and function so you may once again perform your daily routine with less pain and increased energy. We focus on exercises that will steadfastly improve muscle sprains/strains, and joint instabilities, increasing your ability to move around your environment. Physical therapy sessions will also help to restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health.

You will receive personal treatment from your therapist customized to fit your rehabilitation needs. Therapists have a goal of increasing mobility, range of motion, balance, strength and endurance. You will also be provided with a home exercise program to expedite your recovery.

Occupational Therapy - Occupational therapists work with a variety of patients in different classifications and age groups from toddlers to elderly patients.

The goal of an occupational therapist is to assist you in achieving independence in performing daily activities using specialized programs specific to your limitations. Activities such as grooming, dressing, cooking, task completion and social gatherings will become easier as we help improve your strength and coordination.

Occupational therapists work with patients with permanent disabilities like spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, or muscular dystrophy in becoming accustomed to the use of adaptive household equipment such as wheelchairs, orthoses, eating aids, and dressing aids.

Our therapists also work with children and toddlers who demonstrate delayed learning abilities hindering their development.

Speech Therapy - Speech, language, and swallowing difficulties can result from a variety of causes including stroke, brain injury, brain deterioration, developmental delays or disorders, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, cleft palate, voice pathology, mental retardation, hearing loss, or emotional problems. Speech impediments can be congenital, developmental, or acquired.

Speech-language pathologists use special instruments and qualitative and quantitative assessment methods, including standardized tests, to analyze and diagnose the nature and extent of impairments.

One method our speech therapists use is The Lee Silverman voice treatment - LOUD (LSVT LOUD) is a widely practiced speech treatment for individuals suffering from Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions. This treatment is heavily researched and designed to counteract the effects of conditions causing speech disorders.

LSVT focuses on increasing vocal loudness and has an intensive approach of one month of treatment. Treatments are administered in 16 sessions in a variety of systematic exercises that stimulate the muscles of the voice box (larynx) by helping the patient to speak LOUD in order to bring their voice back to a healthy volume with no strain. The treatment is guaranteed to improve respiratory, laryngeal and articulatory function.

At Quality Care Rehabilitation Professionals we have experienced therapists on staff who specialize in mobility, cognitive and speech therapy to help patients suffering from Parkinson's disease. Our goal is to help these patients lead fuller, happier lives. Our therapists are passionate and truly invested in the betterment and health of their patients.

Parkinson's disease can affect people in a number of ways including decreased mobility, difficulty performing daily tasks, speech impairments that prevent daily communication, and difficulty eating or swallowing. Therapists take each patient and assess their condition and medical history in order to address their impairments. With physical, occupational and speech therapy patients with Parkinson's have been able to delay and prevent future symptoms.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a set of tests that identify general capacities and tolerances in a patient. The results of these tests allow the patient to return to a daily work life by determining an individual’s physical capacities and functional tolerances.

FCE's evaluate how much a person is safely able to lift, carry, push, pull, balance and grasp and how long they can stand, walk, climb stairs, kneel, crouch, crawl, work overhead, forward bend, sit, etc.

The FCE is useful in determining job placement, job accommodation, or return to work after an injury or illness. FCE’s are performed on a one-to-one basis, taking approximately 3-4 hours depending upon the goals of the FCE. After the FCE is performed, a lengthy, in depth report is generated with the evaluator’s findings and is sent to the requested parties.

In the case of elongated disability, these tests will be required by insurance companies when applying for disability payments or pensions.

FCE certified - A Certified Functional Capacity Evaluator performs the evaluation. A prescription from a physician is required to perform an FCE. FCE's are usually covered by motor vehicle insurance plans or worker’s compensation.

Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for patients suffering from dizziness, vertigo and balance disorders.

VRT is a superior treatment approach in which a certified therapist incorporates non-invasive positional maneuvers into a strategic treatment plan. This plan will most often include specific head, body, and eye exercises to be performed both in therapy and at home.

Goals of VRT:

  • Improve Balance

  • Prevent falls due to dizziness

  • Increase stability during movement

  • Increase neuromuscular coordination

  • Decrease anxiety due to vestibular disorientation

Vestibular Therapy certification - Vestibular Therapy is performed by certified therapists who specialize in balance testing and vestibular therapy.
